It was a raffle, it's not like people were paying a lot each. This type of raffle happens all the time in real life. I don't get why bitcoin people think that things need to be held to a higher standard than the rest of the world in cases like this. Or people who charge a premium *just because* something is sold in bitcoins.
I paid $.70 worth for something that might be worth $40 if I won. No biggie here. Btw he refunded my money, too, so all is well on that side, too.
I wish other people were able to view things the way you do. The money from the raffle was to recover the money I spent on that coin as it was from my personal collection, money to purchase another coin for a 2nd raffle, and a little bit of gas money to cover travel to the coin shop for said purchase. It's not like I was going to get rich, hell I was barely going to make a profit from this. Too bad there was a lack of interest as I was planning on doing this every month, maybe even 2 a month but I guess not.
Also, thank you for stating that I refunded your entry. I always try to remain honest and respectful on here
